Ghana Air Force receives Z-9 helicopters

The Ghana Air Force has taken delivery of four Z-9EH utility helicopters from China, and will use them to secure the West African country’s oil and gas industry.

The aircraft were commissioned by President John Dramani Mahama on 23 September at Burma Camp in Accra in a ceremony attended by 300 people including representatives from the armed forces and oil and gas industry.
